Monmouth, Illinois – Group featured on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” which begins airing tonight, January 7, 2019, on NBC, will be making their way to Monmouth Illinois for a concert in May!

The Sons of Serendip, who were scheduled to open Mapleleaf Community Concert Series’ (MLCCS) 2018-2019 season, rescheduled due to the fact that they would be performing again as part of what Simon Cowell, refers to as “The Olympics of talent,” on the popular television series, “America’s Got Talent.”
The Sons of Serendip include Micah Christian, lead vocalist, pianist and guitarist Cordaro Rodriguez, harpist Mason Morton, and cellist-composer-vocalist Kendall Ramseur. The four met while at Boston University, and since that time, have continued to bring music that, “touches the heart,” of all audiences. They describe themselves as a gospel/classical/neo-soul/R&B fusion quartet, who sing beautiful songs.

The fact that their concert had to be rescheduled due to the “Olympics” of talent on “America’s Got Talent only illustrates the caliber of artists that are brought to our community every year,” said Stan Jenks, who serves on the MLCCS board of directors and has played an integral part of choosing talent for every season. “We are very proud of the variety, diversity, and skill level of the artists we have hosted for more than a quarter of a century.”

The Sons of Serendip’s local concert will be held May 28, 2019 and is last concert of MLCCS’s blockbuster season. Other upcoming concerts include: “Cellisimo,” featuring Anne Suda and Ruslan Biryukov February 21; “The Willoughby Brothers,” March 11; and “7th Ave,” April 12.
All MLCCS concerts are held at the extraordinary Dahl Chapel on Monmouth College’s campus. Individual tickets for all concerts are available for purchase online (www.mapleleafccs.com) and through the Monmouth Area Chamber of Commerce (309.734.3181). Individual tickets are $30 per person. A ticket for the entire season is $70, which is a remarkable value. Students and children are always admitted free.
